I've just noticed this on my turtles neck. It doesn't brush off it seems like part of his skin. Is it shedding or something I need to treat?

Could be shedding, can you post a picture of it? Is it visible out of water?

I have something similar going on with my turtle. Here is a picture. I was away for a while and while I was away the filter stopped working so I'm thinking that maybe the dicoloration is due to the water quality and maybe a burn?

It does look whiter than normal but I'm not sure I see anything unusual. Any other symptoms?
